A 16-year-old boy named Farhan tragically lost his life in Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh while attempting to film an Instagram reel. The incident, which was captured on his friend’s mobile phone, has been circulating on social media.
Farhan was attempting to capture the fast-moving train in the background of his reel. However, the stunt went horribly wrong, and he was struck by the train. The shocking video shows the train hitting the boy, causing him to be launched into the air before crashing to the side.
The accident occurred in the Jahangirabad police station area on the railway track. The police have sent Farhan’s body for post-mortem and have launched an investigation into the incident.
This incident serves as a grim reminder of the dangers associated with attempting risky stunts for social media content. Earlier this year, a 20-year-old man in Chhattisgarh fell to his death while filming an Instagram reel with his friends at a college. Similarly, in July, a man in Karnataka slipped and fell into a waterfall while filming an Instagram reel, ultimately being swept away by the current.
These incidents highlight the need for caution and responsibility when creating content for social media platforms. It is important to prioritize safety and make informed decisions to prevent such tragic accidents from occurring.
